Gas tank drain plug

Post by jryan19 »



I noticed my drain plug has a slow leak. Does that plug have a sealing washer ? Any where I can get a new one ? Or a whole new plug ?
Bike bandit did not show it on their site. Also my drain plug is rounded off and hard to get a hold of. Removed the tank today. Planning to clean it out good. Thanks for any info.
